Dyche Leads Well-Wishes For Sir Alex

6 May 2018

Sean Dyche led the well-wishes for Sir Alex Ferguson, who is recovering in hospital following emergency brain surgery.

The Clarets boss described Ferguson, along with Sunday’s opposing manager Arsene Wenger, as “titans of the game”.

And Dyche admitted his thoughts were with the former Manchester United manager and his loved ones.

He said: “Obviously our hearts and thoughts are with Sir Alex and his family and we hope he recovers well and speedily.”

Clarets’ defender Phil Bardsley came through the youth ranks at United under Ferguson and was given a first-team debut by the legendary Scot at the start of a five-year stay as a senior player at Old Trafford.

He said: “Sir Alex was a big part of my early career and this came as a real shock. Our thoughts are with him and his family.”

Burnley skipper Tom Heaton also started his career under Ferguson at United before leaving Old Trafford to launch a first-team career.

“Anyone who worked under Sir Alex has felt the benefit – at United or elsewhere.

“Myself and all the players here wish him a speedy recovery and all the best for him and his family,” said Heaton.
